Philippines may pull peacekeepers from Golan
MANILA– Philippines Foreign Affairs Secretary Albert del Rosario said Friday he wanted all Filipino peacekeepers pulled out of the Golan Heights as soon as possible, following the abduction of four troops.
Del Rosario said he would make the recommendation to President Benigno Aquino III to withdraw the more than 300 troops and it was up to him to make the decision.
“As soon as he says go, we will undertake to do that as soon as possible,” Del Rosario said.
